Frank Einstein and the Antimatter Motor

Frank Einstein is a kid genius who loves figuring out how the world works by creating household contraptions that are part science, part imagination and definitely unusual.

Frank attempts to perfect his Dark Energy Drive ...that is until Frank's arch nemesis, T. Edison, steals Frank’s robot inventions, Klink and Klank. With the help of his friends, Frank sets out to rescue the robots and stop T. Edison from carrying out his twisted plans!

Using real science, Jon Scieszka has created a unique world of adventure and science fiction.
